I’ve posted about Pocoyó before and I just have to say that I love this little guy! Pocoyó is a cartoon, originally from Spain. The episodes are about 6 minutes long and are just perfect for the language classroom. What’s even better is that if you teach French, there are episodes in that language too- as well as Italian, Mandarin, Portuguese and more!
I used the following episode in my restaurant unit. I’ve used it as an introduction to the unit as well as just vocabulary review and comprehension.
And here is a TPT activity I created to follow the viewing of the video. I usually watch the video once, without any questions, so they can enjoy it and just focus on the language. I then follow up with the comprehension questions.
Have you ever used Pocoyó in your classroom? How? Have you used any other children’s programming? How do your students respond?
